Hey, i have a stock BKO w/ a PE 47 ci 3000 psi tank and a 2 vt revvy (soon to be an Egg w/ y-board)....i chop like u wouldn't believe....i am getting the egg as soon as i have the money, so i think that that might take care of the problem....then last night, i discovered i have blowback...i discovered that i did by using the card-on-the-feed-neck check(u know, u put a ball in the breech, then put a credit card or something similar on top and when u shoot it and the card competley blows off, then u have blowback).

i was wondering....does anyone know the trick about cutting ur bolt and making ur own makeshift vapor bolt w/ o-rings? i heard about that and i'm not sure if i wanna risk cutting up my bolt to try it....does it really work? or am i better off just buying a vapor bolt?

Also, please, PLEASE somone: tell me how to "sweetspot" the regs. you need to put it in the simplest form u know how....i think my regs are sweetspotted...

before i did the mod when i got my egg i thought the chopping would stop also but it didnt .... you have to be careful not to file it all the way to the hole in the bolt tho

its going to be very hard to do it if u dont have the special machine (i have no clue wat there called) or at least a drill press. i would not recomend just carving in to your bolt. i have a drill press so i just put the bolt into where a drill bit would go and took a file and held it againts where i needed the groove and let it run till the groove was deep enough. if u do not use a drill or the speacial machine u will not get a very straight or even groove so i do not recomend doing this without a stationary drill.....

if u dont have a drill press u might be able to clamp a electric hand drill to a table and that would be the same basic concept as the drill press but its just a thought
